Written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (who also wrote Taken and Transporter 3), Colombiana is set in Latin America and follows a young woman who, after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be a stone-cold assassin. Cat (Saldana) works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target: the mobster responsible for her parents' death. From this poster alone, it looks like it'll be awesome, and we'll let you know when we've got more. Sony Pictures has now Colombiana scheduled for release August 26th this fall.
